replacing water

I have a 46 gallon aquarium that is not close to a water supply. I end up siphoning water into a 5 gallon bucket and carrying it to a utility sink. I then make multiple trips to refill my aquarium. Has anyone found a good portable water transport system that can be wheeled between the aquarium and utility sink?

I use a rubbermade tote its 100L and I fill up to 20 gallons in it no problem. It slides perfectly across carpet but if you want wheels you could consider a rolling cooler

How do you transfer water from Rubbermaid to aquarium?

I do my PWC's with a 5gal water cooler jug and walk it back and forth ... only because I do not mind the back and forth, gives me a break to think.

In your case, have you considered a Python water changer?

No Spill Clean & Fill Python Productss

They do offer up to 100ft models ... 25ft is the standard.
